XXCLONE Free
Move your data to a new hard drive with XXCLONE

Whether you want to safeguard your valuable files by backing it up, or you are installing a new hard drive and need to migrate data from the old one, XXCLONE is on hand to help you out. This free program makes it possible to create an exact replica of the contents of one hard drive on another. While this is something that could be done manually, having something to help you out makes things a great deal quicker and easier.

You may have decided that you need a larger hard drive, or you may have decided to make the switch from a SATA drive to an SSD. Moving all of your files can be a serious pain, but XXCLONE can eliminate some of the frustration. Using the app helps to avoid the need to check that all of your files have copied as you can rest safe in the knowledge that an exact replicate is being created for you and you can then make that drive bootable.

We have said that the program could be used for data migration or backing up purposes, but there is one problem if you decide to use it for backups. While it is possible to schedule a backup to be run and updated in the future and on a regular basis, the process of getting this set up is a convoluted mess involving setting up batch files which is off-putting to the extent that many people simply won’t bother – which negates the benefits of creating a backup.

There are also Home and Pro versions of the app available for $40 and $60 per year. These include important additional features such as the ability to create incremental backup and faster ‘hyper’ backups. While these are certainly not essential for backing up your data, they do make things a great deal faster and easier. For basic jobs, however, the free version will suffice.

Verdict:

It gets the job done, but XXCLONE is a little basic and there are better free tools out there.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
